I finally decided to take the plunge and create something from John Murphy's book, Stupid Sock Creatures: Making Quirky, Lovable Figures from Cast-off Socks.
I've been waiting because I didn't have any cast-off socks. I like my socks, and no one was offering to donate theirs to the cause. I felt a certain amount of guilt sacrificing a pair of perfectly good socks. As it turned out, however, L'ove-Lorna was well worth it. I am using the new style of naming I've seen in the papers lately which requires one to use an abundance of punctuation.
Is she not a thing of beauty? Okay, she is cute, at least. And, look at those eyes!
Here she is in a more formal pose. Those ears are great fun.
L'ove-Lorna can tie them in a knot but not a bow.
My first sock adventure! I'm stoked! I have some pink heart-shaped buttons. She will probably have a sister by tomorrow.
Isn't this book great! It's the book that got me started on sock creations - I love the way it's written to make you realise that everything is good - it doesn't have to follow an exact pattern. You've already made a fine batch of lovelies. xReplyDelete
